The town of San Benedetto del Tronto has a wide range of sports facilities as well as a spectacular cycle path that runs along the coast between Grottammare and Cupramarittima. The historic centre of the town is full of architectural and historic gems such as the Rocca, a historic fortress from where the entire area can be admired in all its splendour, and the various churches and picturesque alleys. It is certainly worth a visit to the town of Ascoli Piceno, with one of the most beautiful squares in Italy, the town of Fermo with its Roman cisterns hidden beneath the square, or the small towns of Offida, Monteprandone, Acquaviva Picena and Ripatransone nestled in the hills. Wine and food lovers will be delighted by the selection of cellars and producers of Pecorino or Rosso Piceno Superiore wine to visit, and can try typical local food in some of the many restaurants in the area.
